Magmatism in Extensional Structural Settings : the Phanerozoic African Plate

Author: A B Kampunzu; R T Lubala
Publisher: Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1991.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The African continent is unique in that it has escaped widespread orogenic activity after the Pan African orogenic event. Therefore, the African Plate provides the world's best example of the relationship between extensional magmatism and structural setting. This first complete and up-to-date review, written by leading scientists, discusses the evolutionary model and offers a new and reliable basis for scientists  Read more...
